Finale B Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
All Seven Homeless
Christmas bells are ringing
Christmas bells are ringing
Christmas bells are ringing
How time flies
When compassion dies
No stockings
No candy canes
No gingerbread
No safety net
No loose change
No change no
Verse 2
One Homeless Man
"Santy Claus is coming"
Verse 3
All
Cause Santy Claus ain't coming
No room at the Holiday Inn - again
Well, maybe next year --
Or -- when
Verse 4
Mark
December 24th, ten PM eastern standard time
I can't believe a year went by so fast
Time to see what we have time to see
Turn the projector on
First shot Roger
With the fender guitar he just got out of hock
When he sold the car
That took him away and back
Verse 5
Roger
I found my song
Verse 6
Mark
He found his song
If he could just find Mimi
Verse 7
Roger
I tried - you know I tried
Verse 8
Mark
Fade in on Mark
Who's still in the dark
Verse 9
Roger
But he's got great footage
Verse 10
Mark
Which he's cut together
Verse 11
Roger
To screen tonight
Verse 12
Mark
In honor of Benny's wife
Verse 13
Roger
Muffy
Verse 14
Mark
Alison
Pulling Benny out of the East Village location
Verse 15
Roger
Then again, maybe we won't screen it tonight.
Verse 16
Mark
I wonder how Alison found out about Mimi?
Verse 17
Roger
Maybe a little bird told her.
Verse 18
Collins
Or an angel.
Verse 19
I had a little hunch that you could use a little flow
Verse 20
Roger
Tutoring again?
Verse 21
Collins
Negative
Verse 22
Mark
Back at N.Y.U.?
Verse 23
Collins
No, no, no
I rewired the ATM at the food emporium
To provide an honorarium to anyone with the code
Verse 24
Roger & Mark
The code -
Well...?
Verse 25
Collins
A-N-G-E-L
Yet Robin Hooding isn't the solution
The powers that be must be undermined where they dwell
In a small, exclusive gourmet institution
Where we overcharge the wealthy clientele
Verse 26
All Three
Let's open up a restaurant in Santa Fe
With a private corner banquette in the back
Verse 27
Collins
We'll make it yet, we'll somehow get to Santa Fe
Verse 28
Roger
But you'd miss New York before you could unpack
Verse 29
All
Ohh--
Verse 30
Maureen
Mark! Roger! Anyone - help!
Verse 31
Mark
Maureen?
Verse 32
Maureen
It's Mimi - I can't get her up the stairs
Verse 33
Roger
No!
Verse 34
Maureen
She was huddled in the park in the dark
And she was freezing
And begged to come here
Verse 35
Roger
Over here
Oh, God -
Verse 36
Mimi
"got a light - I know you - you're shivering..."
Verse 37
Joanne
She's been living on the street
Verse 38
Roger
We need some heat
Verse 39
Mimi
I'm shivering
Verse 40
Mark
We can buy some wood and something to eat
Verse 41
Collins
I'm afraid she needs more than heat
Verse 42
Mimi
I heard that
Verse 43
Maureen
Collins will call for a doctor, honey
Verse 44
Mimi
Don't waste your money on Mimi, me, me
Verse 45
Collins
Hello - 911?
I'm on hold
Verse 46
Mimi
Cold...cold... would you light my candle
Verse 47
Roger
Yes - we'll oh God - find a candle
Verse 48
Mimi
I should tell you
I should tell you
Verse 49
Roger
I should tell you
I should tell you
Verse 50
Mimi
I should tell you
Benny wasn't any--
Verse 51
Roger
Shhh-I know
I should tell you why I left
It wasn't cause I didn't --
Verse 52
Mimi
I know
I should tell you
Verse 53
Roger
I should tell you
Verse 54
Mimi
I should tell you
I love you--
Verse 55
Roger
Who do you think you are?
Leaving me alone with my guitar
Hold on there's something you should hear
It isn't much but it took all year
